I was upgraded to first class on a flight from London to New York.
The food, champagne, and service were impeccable.
The blue-eyed man sitting next to me, even better.
He was suave and intelligent.
We talked and laughed, and something clicked.
Fate took over and the plane was grounded, and we had an unexpected stopover for the night.
With no plans, we made our own.
We danced and laughed our way around Boston and had a night of crazy passion that no woman would ever forget.
That was twelve months ago, and I haven’t heard from him—until today.
I started a new job and met the CEO. You can imagine my surprise to see those naughty blue eyes dance with delight when he saw me across the mahogany desk.
But I’m not that carefree girl anymore. My life has changed, I have responsibilities.
I just got an email.
He wants to see me in his office for a private meeting at 8:00 a.m.
Naughty blue eyes have no place in the workplace.
What kind of private meeting does he have in mind?
First Person, dual-POV
Book #1 of the Miles High Club series
Welcome to the Miles-High Club… Dear God, I thought he meant sex-in-a-plane club… he meant women who had slept with him.
Addictiveness: 5/5 This book hooked me from the beginning until the end. it kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what would come next. As addictive as chocolate!!!
Character: hero 4.5/5, heroine 4.5/5, secondary characters 5/5, growth 5/5, real 5/5 Characters were multidimensional, with several layers to them. They have shown personal growth throughout the story and they were easy to connect and understand.
Jameson was a hot, alpha billionaire not used to hear the word NO. He was a workaholic used to one night stands and casual flings. From the beginning his attraction to Emily was very powerful and a lot more than he knew what to do with. He was always saying he wanted something, but acting totally different from his own speech. He was used to boss people around and didn’t know how to react to Emily’s strong personality. He grew a lot during the story and his personal journey was really lovely to read.
Emily was young, hardworking, with a strong personality and ambitious. She had a dream job and really worked to get it. She was used to be the strong one of a relationship, not really used to mature men that had his life figured out. She was very stubborn and had difficult to accept that Jameson was the more experienced of the two. At the same time, she was very loyal and very patient with him. She was a good, strong heroine, and exactly what Jameson needed to balance his personality.
All four Miles men were hot, powerful and dreamy. Can’t wait to read their stories, specially Tristan. I have to say that I have also loved Jameson’s parents. It was refreshing to read a book of billionaires that the family was not dysfunctional.
All characters were easy to love, connect and understand.
Cover: art 4/5, title 5/5, color-font 5/5, buy 5/5 I’m obsessed with book covers. I love to find snippets of the stories within the art. This is a good cover. I can totally see how this could be Jameson holding his iPhone. That guy is sexy and classy. I love the colors, the yellow giving a gold vibe makes it richer, proper for a billionaire. I’ve loved the title, really important for the story. I would easily buy this book by its cover, without needing to read the blurb!
Freshness: 4.5/5 This has an original concept and it felt very new. To bring something different for a contemporary romance is hard, but the author did it really well. As fresh as mint tea.
Plot: believable 5/5, conflict 4/5, dialogue 5/5, ending 5/5, enjoyment 5/5, opening 5/5, pace 5/5, setting 5/5, subplots 4/5, twists 4/5 Amazing opening great ending. A very believable plot with wonderful dialogue. A fast paced romance with great setting. The idea of the conflict was good, but the solution was a too much convoluted. Very high level of enjoyment!
Romance: believable 5/5, chemistry 5/5, description 5/5, development 5/5, steam 5/5 O.M.G! This book was hot!!! Really this couple couldn’t be in the same room together because their chemistry was intense. So many amazing scenes with great descriptions and very believable. There was a lot of smut in the book, but it all felt very pertinent to the story.
Writing Style: 5/5 Crafty writing! Refreshing plot, great characters, wonderful romance with panty-wetter smut. Clean, cohesive writing that kept me wanting more.
Villains… there were not enough background on them, and I would like to know more about them.
Conflict… the idea was great, I just think how it was all executed it was too convoluted.
Ms. Swan knows her craft and does it really well.
She created a billionaire’s romance that was completely believable and never forced.
She wrote a hot romance with lot of smut that never felt excessive.
The book didn’t feel long, even though it says it was.
Can’t wait for the next!!!

Would I recommend? Sure. If you like romance and enjoy smut, this is a must!
Would I re-read this book/series? Yes. I’m certain I will follow the series and I would reread the book.
Would I read more from the author? Yes. In fact, I’m really looking forward to.
